Melgisorb Ag Absorbent Alginate
When the risk of infection is high, Melgisorb Ag is the choice. It absorbs up to 45% more exudate than the leading silver dressing and provides a sustained antimicrobial effect. Releasing silver ions in the presence of wound fluid, Melgisorb Ag is also effective against a broad spectrum of microorganisms. Melgisorb Ag is a highly absorbent alginate dressing with CMC and ionic silver that kills bacteria for up to four days. The superb wet strength of the alginate fibers do not allow the dressing to disintegrate in the wound bed so it may be removed easily in one piece. Melgisorb Ag is ideal for deep, highly exuding cavity wounds at risk of infection, such as leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic and neuropathic ulcers, graft and donor sites, surgical wounds, and trauma injuries.
